  • This Saturday, starting at 10:00 a.m., 14 second and third graders will have a fencing competition using steel épée blades and electric scoring. Because of the large numbers of eligible fencers, the fall tournament was spread over two Saturdays. All Rosalyn Yalow students and their families are invited to watch. The competition will last 2-3 hours. If you can spare the time please stop by to watch these future collegiate athletes in action.

  • On Wednesday, December 13, Yalow’s 2nd- and 3rd-grade students will visit the American Museum of Natural History. Teachers will guide children through exhibits as part of their general studies. Children return to the school at 11:45 a.m. for early dismissal. Wednesday dismissal is at 12:00 p.m. so teachers may participate in professional development. Children must be dressed in their school uniforms or they may not go on the trip. Please let teachers know if you are interested in volunteering to chaperone students on this or future trips to the museum.

  • Wednesday programs are open to students by invitation, and parents should consult with their child’s teachers. Students need tactical instruction in chess and fencing to become more competitive team players. Wednesday sessions go beyond Yalow’s regular curriculum chess and fencing classes, focusing on tournament competition. Yalow’s fencing team practice is for advanced second and third graders, with students using steel épées (one of the three fencing weapons).

  • The next Parent Association meeting takes place Saturday, December 9. About 30 parents have come together to help build Yalow’s school community and would like parents to share ideas on how we can reflect our diverse cultures to celebrate the holiday season together. All parents are welcome, and volunteers are always appreciated to organize and staff upcoming family events. Parent assistance is important to building Yalow’s school culture and strengthening relationships among children and their families, and we hope you can join us. Meeting outcomes will be messaged out.
